Sets Captives Free

I work for a non profit organization called Sets Captives Free. Here is what we do:

We incorporate Equine Assisted Psychotherapy to help women newly released from prison here in Co, to re-establish their lives in a productive, and meaningful manner, by dealing with the issues that cause continual re-entry into the prison system; Depression, PTSD, Social Anxiety Disorder, Drug and Alcohol Addictions, and many other causes. We teach them how to love themselves again, teach them they have value, we teach them to find and hold jobs. We teach how to balance a bank account, shop effectively, and communication skills.

We also offer these very same services to children of current inmates, as well as children currently in the Juvenile Courts.

I have been working with this group for just over a year now, as their barn manager, and have gotten to see some amazing transformations! Please check out what we do!
( so there is no surprises, yes, this is a Christian organization) you
Can find out more about what is being done with this organization, at
SCFMinistry.org
Thank you for reading!

    I take care of the horses. Mz.Karen does the the hard job! She helps these women and children restore their lives.

    Nice. From what I can tell, equine therapy can work wonders. :)

    It really really does! That young man in the first pic, is now teaching he next group of kids horsemanship, and safe life skills! He started out so angry, and was prone to violent outbursts. Now he
    Is a shining example, all thanks to this wonderful program. :-D

    As you can see DJ is our ready, steady, Go to horse, because he is so mellow; huge.. But gentle. Frosty,

    Requires a more experienced hand, due to her history of non-contact. However she has bonded instantly with the girl in the above pic, Squirrel. So, she has become Squirrel's project horse. Squirrel, ( Amanda) was just released from Colorado State Pen in Denver, after a 15 yr sentence for murder. And while she hasn't opened up to us yet, she talks up a storm to Frosty and DJ. She is the only person that Frosty greets at the gate. Just goes to show how powerful the love of a horse can be!

    Ps, the hood-like things on the horses are fly-masks. They keep flies, dust, and other debris out of the horses' eyes.

    Awesome story! That's great that Squirrel is talking to the horses. Hell, I'd rather talk to an animal than most people. Keep up the good work. :plus_one:

    And thanks for clarifying the hood-like thing. I was curious.
